"Bloat" means you need to read the code as a full time job to contribute.

Is dmenu bloat? No, I can read that code in 3 minutes and contribute within 10. dwm? Same. Rofi? Hell no. i3? Psh. Not even close. And while, certainly wouldn't call it unethical: Yes, I maintain it works against my 1st and 3rd freedoms. This isn't just some abstract "reee bloat" nonsense. There is a clear, practical concern with unnecessary code complexity.

I updated the #color palette helper I made 5 years ago! Lots of new features:
- quick-editing of input colors
- added charts for saturation+hue
- added colorblind check and simulator
- fixed url serialization bug

Happy coloring!

Imagine making love in a bed with Netflix bed sheets.

Imagine reaching climax, and all you see is "Netflix" everywhere.

Might be the way you present yourself. People are less likely to approach people who seem guarded, more serious, or have a body language that projects inwardness/"helplessness." I tend to have resting bitch face as a default, but I find out I become more approachable as people realize, "oh, he's chill actually." But yeah, best route in that case is to approach people yourself unless you have the patience to find out how approachable you can get yourself to be.

so, anyway, to recap from the stream:

- gab is apparently intentionally federating by design (as confirmed by their own CTO). test instance at, block it if you want or not, but it's just a test instance, so i don't really care either way

- gab CTO dropped an interesting reply into my other thread about dropping downvoting and reducing their character count for federation's sake (which is just weird, as federation doesn't impact either of these)

- gab apparently intends to become compliant with their AGPL requirements

- gab's JSON-LD context is broken so gab custom emojis and profiles will not fully federate with other JSON-LD implementations

Human teeth would be more effective if they were one thousand five hundred percent larger #LifeHack

In 2000, we were able to identify the Standard Model relationship with the confirmation of the existence of "Waluigi".

Some have proposed the Supersymmetry Model; I say this model does not go far enough.

What I am proposing is a radical paradigm shift from even just a generation ago: with the confirmed existence of Gooigi, the entire model as we've known it was thrown into disarray.

The String Theory Model attempts to reconcile that which we know to be true, and that which we do not yet know.


i just usually don't care for politics being forced into anything, which just so happens to be quite common amongst Western writers especially; if one's art, writing, or composition are going to be political, it should be a lot more organic than overt otherwise it just comes off as banal propaganda, and that's true insofar as any side of the political spectrum is concerned - it frankly doesn't matter if it's on the side of politics i care about if it's done poorly.

furthermore there are plenty pieces of art - especially in music - that aren't explicitly political at all, so i can say with some confidence that, at least insofar as music is concerned, your argument is incorrect. of course, it's quite easy to project your own politics into any form of media, so one may argue that, for someone out there, everything is indeed political. at least subjectively speaking. i would really like to know how the ^5-^6-^7 theme and the d-major tonic of Mozart's 38th symphony are inherently political, though.

I just wanna put it out there that the word for “being polite on mastodon” should be fediquette
